The Clone Roses

Stone Roses tribute band The Clone Roses are the longest serving and biggest selling Roses tribute band in the UK. In July 2018, they celebrated their 20th Anniversary headlining Sherdley Park in St Helens to 4000 people.

The Stone Roses appeared to have now split up, so for Roses fans there is only 1 option to hear those songs played with the same passion and energy as the real thing. Their attention to detail is second to none, with the band acquiring the same clothing, instruments and usually play the same set as The Roses themselves. The band have recently played Isle of Wight Festival, Shiine on Weekender, and “A Tribute to Manchester” headlining to over 2500 at Manchester Academy 1, and to 1700 people at Ulster Hall in Belfast, as well as a UK Tour of the o2 Academy music venues.

Expect to hear all the classics, “Waterfall”, “Made of Stone”, “I am the Resurrection” and more!

If you’ve never seen the real deal or want to re-live the best gig you’ve been to then “The Clones” will deliver the next best thing!

The Smiths Ltd

The Smiths Ltd was formed in Manchester, UK the hometown of The Smiths.

After an extensive search to find the perfect Morrissey, the band played their first gig in Manchester to an audience of avid Smiths fans. The response was spectacular and the band now plays at venues and festivals all over the UK.

If you never saw The Smiths then this is your chance to experience the thrill of those great songs played live. If you were lucky enough to see them first time around then prepare to relive that excitement again.

Committed to getting the same energy that Morrissey, Johnny Marr, Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce had onstage together, the band are also obsessed about getting that live sound just right.

With an authenticity and provenance that’s hard to beat The Smiths Ltd are the ultimate tribute.

The Smiths meant everything to a generation… To us they still do.
